Trentus Magnus Punches Reality- Episode 17- Superman Begins 06- Earth One

I've got your alt text right HERE

Superman- Earth One, vol. 1

Well, here it is. In this ball-mutilating episode, Magnus reaches the final chapter of Superman Begins, the miniseries saluting (or flipping off) various Superman origin stories from comics.

This time out the subject is Superman- Earth One vol. 1 written by J. Michael Straczynski and drawn by Shane Davis. Did Magnus love it? Hate it? Is this going to be another Secret Origin episode where he can’t even bear to finish? There’s only one way to find out! Michael Bailey and Scott Gardner will be pleased to know that there are no five minute breaks this time!

Do you have a suggestion for a topic? Feel free to e-mail me at and I might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
